Every day, all around Queensland and beyond, individuals and families are affected by violence inflicted by someone close to them. Women and children, in particular, suffer the consequences of domestic, family and sexual violence. Yet, ultimately this violence impacts on all of us, in communities, workplaces and other settings. If we can better understand this violence through research, and better respond to this violence through education, QCDFVR hopes to contribute to a safer society for all.
